It's official! Victoria's Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson married her longtime love Sean Clayton yesterday in Bluffton, South Carolina after a seven-month engagement. The stylish supermodel exchanged vows with her fiancé in an intimate ceremony of just 85 guests.
"Words can't express the joy and happiness we have as we start the next chapter of our lives together with the support and love of our families and friends," the happy couple told E! News in an exclusive statement.
Ellingson looked every bit the model in a side-swept chignon and an embroidered dress, while her custom-made rose gold diamond wedding band was the perfect complement to the groom's rose-gold band — both designed by New York City jeweler Friman & Stein.
After the ceremony, the couple shared their first dance to Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home".
This was no whirlwind romance as Ellingson and Clayton were together for 2 1/2 years before he popped the question at his family's home in Ohio last November during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The 29 year-old blonde bombshell recently revealed to Brides that she met her now-husband at a party celebrating the launch of Jay Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne album in the Big Apple. She gave Clayton, a medical sales rep, her number, and guess what? He didn't call her! They didn't make plans to actually go out until they had a run-in at Union Square Greenmarket in New York City the very next day.
It seems that destiny had a hand in pulling these two together — congratulations to the newlyweds! Read more about Ellingson and Clayton's nuptials in our October/November issue.
